    Well, Sort Of...

    I'm still a student. Granted, I only have a year left, but I'm kind of stranded on an island (literally), and I have no way of really expanding myself, until I move this summer. Recently I've been seriously worried about myself regarding what the hell I'm going to be doing with...

    I'm Too Distracted By Shiny Things.

    It's true. I love to draw, and I'm fairly decent at it, and in fact, I can't NOT draw. However I'm also interested in science and careers involving animals. I drift from one pole to the next, one day wanting to be an artist, the next wanting to work at a zoo. I'm 24 fer pete...

    Here Goes...

    After 5+ years of university, 4+ years in a loveless relationship, and 3+ years back with disillusioning parents, I am finally giving this thing a shot - the dream of becoming an artist. I have myself at age 7, captured on home video, declaring this desire. When I was 16, I...

    I have always been good at drawing, I think I am naturally artistic. When I was in pre-school my art would be put up in the foyer week after week as one of the best. Although my parents acknowledge my talent they do not think it is something that should be taken seriously. It...

    I'm Lost

    That about sums it up. I've always been creative, I guess. I've always loved to draw, though I use the term draw pretty loosely. I would call it doodling, I love to doodle. I doodle on everything, I've been reprimanded for it before when doodling on things I shouldn't doodle...
